If you are that influenced by internet postings don't buy it. If you take the time to actually go try one then make up your own mind. If everyone followed the stories on forums nothing from any company would sell except edibles. Use the return period to aggressively use it to be sure.
It looks like a great buy. It is not expensive compared to what you get, and it is an amazing computer. It is big and heavy, but if you are OK with it, and if you are into macOS, then I can see no better buy.
Yeah, as long as no widespread hardware issues surface, all the new models are a better buy than the previous generation, but I agree that the base model is a particularly good value.The 16” is a good buy, especially the base model. It’s a very balanced configuration and the best MBP since the 2015 15” dGPU (M360X) and/or the 2013 15” (GT750) models.
If your workflow can take advantage of 8 cores, the slightly faster dGPU, or you need 1 TB storage, it's fine. I just think that most workflows that really DO need that power would likely be better served by 32 GB RAM as well.Did I make a mistake buying the 2,799 model?
The screen is fantastic. If you listen to these forums you’ll never buy an Apple product. I’ve owned a lot of Macs and the 16 inch if my favorite notebook hands down.
This forum is not the norm. I have tons of Apple products, iMac’s Macbooks Homepods Apple Watch iPhones Apple TV’s etc...never had an issue with one that they list on here all the time. It’s mostly user error unless it’s some fudged up OS release that usually gets fixed.The screen is fantastic. If you listen to these forums you’ll never buy an Apple product.
